US warship and Iranian forces in stand-off over oil tanker



Footage released by Iranian armed forces purports to show a stand-off on international waters between Iran and a US warship.

Iranian state TV offered a series of contradictory reports about a confrontation between the Guard and the U.S. Navy’s Mideast-based 5th Fleet. State TV sought to cast the incident as an act of American aggression against Iran in the Gulf of Oman, with the U.S. Navy detaining a tanker carrying Iranian oil and the Guard freeing it and bringing it back to the Islamic Republic.
